Chloe Moretz has signed on to star in Hick, a coming-of-age tale from director Derick Martini.
Moretz is on fire since her scene-stealing performance in Kick-Ass. The young actress will be seen later this year in Let Me In, a remake of the Swedish vampire tale, Let the Right One. She's also going to work with Martin Scorsese on The Invention of Hugo Cabret, which will mark the legendary director's first trip into the world of 3D.
Moretz has decidedly replaced Dakota Fanning, who is now going after mature roles, as the young girl with acting chops that directors flock to.
